A list of snowy mysteries to help you enjoy the winter….
First up, of course, Jo Nesbo’s creepy The Snowman (2010), finds Inspector Harry Hole chasing down someone who buries bodies inside snowmen. You may never, ever look at a snowman the same way again. Ignore the bad movie – pick up this great read and be completely immersed.
Camilla Lackburg’s The Ice Princess (2008) finds writer Erica returning to her tiny Swedish hometown when a friend is found dead and frozen in his bathtub, wrists slashed. To process what has happened, she begins a memoir, and finds herself solving a crime. Atmospheric, full of well drawn characters, and yes, creepy as all heck.
